my kids twisted my arm in order to go see the new 'nightmare on elm str.'..

i've never felt the need to see any of the originals: slasher movies are just not 'horror' movies...

now...i remember why i didn't need to see the originals....

'nightmare' isn't quite right...maybe..bad dream..? gas..? who knows !

wait for video

for what it's worth...i was either in, or just out of high school when the originl nightmare on elm street wes released. and til this day...it was the most scared i've ever been at a movie theater.

because of that...i don't doubt i will get around to seeing the newly filmed remake...eventually...but i am in no hurry.

wait for video? i shall then. thankee sai

i've enjoyed just about every coen brothers movie. big fan.

big lebowski is probably my favorite ever. after all, the dude abides. and john tuturo as the jesus :-BD is not to be missed.
fargo is fabulous
blood simple (their first flick) is incredible film noir
barton fink
raisiong arizona
oh brother,where art thou?
no country for old men
even the hudsucker proxy was good.

there are probably a few more good ones...but off the top of my head, thats it

the only ones i didn't care for were intolerable cruelty (it was intolerably cruel)
and the ladykillers (gotta be hard to make me not like tom hanks. in fact he sucked big balls in this)

yeah chris i was so looking forward to ladykillers cause hanks is the man but it was terrible. and the dude really does abide. for some odd reason i didnt care for no country. guess my fave is fargo. also just saw the usual suspects and a beautiful mind and the game. all 3 blew me away. the ending of suspects had me screaming at the tv!!! i love twist endings. oh and just saw unbreakable again. wow loved it but i think we talked about that one earlier. and am i the only person on earth who didnt like the dark knight? FINALLY saw it.

yeah...you ARE the only one who doesn't like dark knight. a superhero having to make a moral decision of choosing one person to live while the other dies? and...having to live with the consequesces? deep stuff, brother.

and don't get me started on the usual supects. maybe one of my top 10 movies ever. i used to use the signature kaiser soze. i won't spoil it for those who didn't see it, but didn't you just KNOW that kaiser was going to be dean keaton? i did... :?

by the way, that rug really tied the room together. damn those carpetpissers!

being a huge movie fan, i was intrigued, back in the day, at all the folks who said they were blown away by 'the usual suspects'...and, so i went...problem is, i pegged the 'mystery' right off the bat: i was never fooled...liked the movie, but was a bit deflated by 'getting' it so easily...

now..'the sixth sense'...i DID NOT see coming...the only movie, in my entire life where, not only did i, my wife and several total strangers sit in the theater and talked about it...but, we dropped our plans for the day and turned right around and watched it a second time..

love the coens..i was one of the few and the proud who saw 'blood simple' in the theater..great movie...sold me on the coens as filmakers to watch, so, i saw 'raising arizona' on opening night...one of the funniest movies ever..that music..those characters...

they're doing 'true grit' as a remake...with, i believe, jeff bridges in the john wayne role.....
